Reindeer Mix a.k.a. White Christmas Snack

Always a holiday favorite is Reindeer Mix, a.k.a. White Christmas Snack. It’s an easy solution for parties, teacher or neighbor gifts or a nice little something to tuck in the mailbox for your mail carrier. It’s very simple. You might even have the ingredients on hand. Just melt the white chocolate bark and pour it over Crispix, marshmallows, pretzels and M&Ms. The M&Ms make it holiday colorful!

In the name of allergy-friendly living, so that the youngest two can enjoy it safely, we substituted Hershey brand chocolate chips for the M&Ms. See, those beautiful red and green treats are processed in a facility with nuts. I also made sure the pretzels were safe. Rold Gold pretzels are peanut free, so far.

Now, the chocolate chips, as you can see from the photo, do melt a bit because of the warm white chocolate. But, hey, it’s all chocolatey anyway.

A most delicious treat!

About Hodgepodgemom

Tricia faces a daily dose of chaos homeschooling five children. The biggest lesson she’s learned? At the end of the day – when the dishes are put away and the children are tucked in bed – truly what matters is each child’s relationship with the Lord. Raising children is a God-given privilege and, folks, the time is short.


  1. Makes me hungry right now!! Loved the pictures!

  2. I make something similar, and just thought yesterday how I NEED to make this soon. It’s so wonderful for gift giving. So glad I found you at Meet Penny’s 30 Edible Gifts post! I REALLY love the Reindeer name for this too.
